1967 – 2017

If you can’t look back on a Golden Anniversary, when can you?


At Drone Publishing, we’ve always got one eye (and ear) in the past and 1967 was a hell of an important year. For two of the Drone team, 1967 was the year their parents got married and most of the Drone team raises a glass for some football endeavours from the summer.

However, 1967 was a year where the music came thick and fast. There’s an argument to be made for every year of the 1960s being the year that things changed and while ’67 can raise its hand on that question, it may be that 1967 was the year when many acts, genres and music itself, came to life. Even up to the mid 60s, popular music acts were still seen as part of the overall entertainment circus, sharing stages with comedians, dancers and performers who ensure that the whole family were entertained.

By the end of 1967, that notion was blown out of the window, artists and acts were standing by themselves and were capable of providing their fans with everything they could ever want or need to fill their spare time, their waking hours and every passing thought.

Over 2017, Drone Publishing will be looking back at 1967, covering the great, the good, the over-rated, the overlooked and anyone else we feel is worthy of inclusion.
